What a terrible movie
28 October 2016 | by sukanya-samySee all my reviews

Oh my god, what a terrible movie. My luck with movies seems to be running out. Mother's Day is one of those 7 in 1 stories where everybody is connected in some way but not really. This one has so many sub-plots that your head will spin. There is Julia Roberts and her 'I didn't know about you' daughter. The daughter has a love story going on. Julia Roberts has a meeting with Jennifer Aniston who is divorced and is coming to terms with her husband's remarriage to a much younger woman. And there is the husband and his life. Not to forget Kate Hudson who is a friend of Jennifer Aniston and is married to an Indian Doctor. Kate Hudson has a sister who is a lesbian. And both the sisters have kept these as secrets from their parents who come pay a surprise visit. And then we have the love interest of Jennifer Aniston as Jason Sudeikis, widower with 2 daughter. There is cameo from Jennifer Garner who is married to Jason Sudeikis but dies in combat. And then there are some other subplots which deserve no mention.

I typically like such movies, that is if they are made well. The comedy was forced, the acting was not that great like even from Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts and I didn't really care for the characters.

Yeah, it could be a plausible setting but that is the only positive about it. And don't even get me started with the racist jokes – oh my god. They were terrible and not funny. This movie is not a tribute to Mother's Day in any which way. Do not watch, even if you are dead bored.
